“In the Name of Allah the most
Beneficent and Merciful”
The Verses [51:20-23] as shown under
references clearly manifest that Allah has kept two most authentic Books of
Revelation open for Mankind – one, the Revealed Scriptures - in our case it is
the Holy Quran, and the other is the Universe with all its Creations- man,
nature and society and everything that exists between the heaven and the earth.
Allah speaks with mankind in the language
of divine signs pervading the physical world and through the Books of Revelation.
Both are the Media of communication between the Creator and His creations.
There is Close Similitude between the Holy Quran and divine signs pervading the
physical world. Both are manifestation of divine Truths and there is nothing
miraculous in them.
To feel one with the universe is generally
treated as a Mystic Approach towards cognition of Realities. Actually it is not
so. The feeling of oneness with seen and unseen realities is a logical approach
towards cognition of the interconnection of life with its surroundings. This is
purely an intuitive drive towards logical and scientific understanding of the
reality. Intense urge and yearning for principles of a sublime orderly life
underlie such a Drive for attaining a generalized vision of the purpose of
evolutionary process of life and the universe.
Referring to verses under Reference [Verses 2:2-4, verses 69:51, 69:41-42,
69:41-42,& Verses 8613], we can safely conclude that the Holy Qura’n is Not
a Book of Miracles that negate Reality.
There is no room for any assumption or conjecture in the holy Quran. Whatever
Allah has said in the holy Quran is
based on truth and reality. The Holy Quran deals with the Truth underlying the
Realities of Human life and Physical Universe to which the whole life process
is intricately connected. Entire nature
and universe, all physical processes and history have been presented by the
holy Quran before us as admonition and object of demonstration, to convince
humanity on the existence of Allah as the creator and sustainer of the universe
and deepen our understanding of divine attributes and purpose of creation.
So to treat the Holy Qur’an as a Miracle
seems to be an ideological deviation on the part of Muslims very much likely to
give enemies of Islam a tool for spreading falsehood about the Holy Quran and
lead the “Huqq”[The Truth] towards alienation from Realities of Life.
Whatever mysterious that might happen in
nature and our life beyond the periphery of human comprehension seems to us as
Since Allah is the Eternal Truth and all
His creations Seen and Unseen, manifest that Truth, there is no scope of any
Miracle or Uncertainty in the Holy Quran.
Allah is Real, Life and death as divine
process of Creation and Destruction is Real, Here-after and the Day of Judgment
is Real, Angels, Satan, Heaven and Hell, Reward and Punishment all are Real.
Amidst Current and Counter-Current of Creation, Revelation, Evolution, Death
and Destruction whirling all around us, there is little scope of any conjecture
or miracle in the Holy Quran. Quran never approves of any miracle that negates
There are a number of ancient stories in
the Holy Quran that sound like miracle but actually not so. The stated
competition Between the Prophet Musa(AS) and Sorcerers of Pharaoh ,and similar
other stories appear to be a Miracle but
in reality they reflect the eternal
struggle between the truth and falsehood. And in that contest truth always gets
upper-hand and wins the battle. The stories clearly uphold the eternal truth
that Falsehood might assume any form and dimension, it is bound to fail, but
Truth will always triumph.
The Holy Quran is a divine admonition and
statement of the Truth that guides humanity and presents a generalized vision
of the physical and spiritual realities.
Any quest for Miracles in the Holy Quran stems from lack of knowledge
and emerges out of our inherent weakness in Faith.
This is the Book: In it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who
fear Allah, who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and spend out
of what We have provided for them. And who believe in the Revelation sent to
you, and sent before your time,(in their hearts ) have the assurance of the
“Verily it is the Truth of Assured Certainty”[verses 69:51]
“It is not the word of a poet: little it is you believe! Nor is it the
word of a soothsayer, little admonition you receive!”[69:41-42]
On the earth there are signs for those of assured faith. As also in your
own selves: will ye not then see? ---Then by the Lord of Heaven and Earth, this
is the very Truth, as much as the fact that you can speak intelligently with
each other.” [51:20-23]
This is the Word that distinguishes(Good from the Evils)

@Aayina “Truth has nothing to do with right and wrong. Right and wrong are time
based. Universal truth is time independent.”
It is a good point. I think Jiddu
Krishnamurty also said similar things. However truth hurts. Socrates, Lincoln, Gandhi,
Jesus Christ, Martyn Luther King were murdered for telling the truth. Islamists
have killed many great Muslim souls.
Even here in NAI many commentators abuse Sultan and others for telling
“EVERYONE WHO IS OF THE TRUTH LISTENS TO MY
regime of divinely enforced no-fly zone for scientific knowledge constitutes
the Aerospace of Spiritual Flights.'
